 I  have  seen  a  lot  of  videos  of  Discus  and  neons  together,  but  I  want  to  know  if  really  small  neons  will  not  be  eaten  by  big  Discus  fish?

 Never  seen  a  neon  getting  mauled  by  discus  but  observed  frequent  aggressive  attempts  and  suspicious  reduction  in  neon  numbers.So  it  is  better  to  be  careful.

 Neon  tetras  can  put  with  discus  But  the  temperature  of  27-28  degree  which  is  good  for  discus  will  be  higher  temperature  for  neon.  
 if  we  keep  jevenile  discus  with  neons  ,  it  will  not  be  a  problem.  but  if  we  introduce  neons  in   a  tank  with  grown  up  discus  it  will  cause  problems.
 Rescently  i  had  faced  the  same  problem.Now  i  am  not  using  any  heater  for  my  discus  and  i  had  introduces  6  neons  and  2  small   corydores  in  my  discus  tank.  discus  are  ablut   4.5  to  6  inch  size.they  started  attacking  the  corydores  and  killed  one  of  my  neon   tetras.  So  i  removed  all  the  neons  and  cory  form  the  discus  tank.
 
 I  wondered  because  i  had  kept   neons,danisoni  etc  with  the  same  discus  in  their  jevenile  stage  in  planted.
 Now  the  neons  and  corydores  are  with  my  1.5  inch  discus  in  another  tank  till  now  they  are  doing  good.  
 
 Please  note  that  .  it  is  better  to  keep  Cardinal  tetras  with  jevenile  discus  with  a  temperature  of  27-28.
 if  you  kept  neons  with  discus  in  28  degree,  the  health  of  neons  will  reduce  gradually...

 Hi  elimoses3,
 
 There  are  lot  of  photo  shoot  in  internet.  
 
 >  Like  neon  with  Discus
 
 >Discus  in  Planted  tanks  and  more.  
 
 
 Please  don't  rely  on  this.  Ask  people  for  their  practical  experience.

 I  have  kept  neons  with  my  4  inch  discuses.  But  it  was  a  bad  experience  bro....Everyday  I  used  to  see  my  neon's  half  eaten  dead  bodies...Don't  keep  them  with  each  other.  If  you  can  keep  them  from  the  very  beginning,  like  when  the  discuses  are  smaller  in  size,  it  may  be  a  possibility,  but  otherwise  I  don't  think  it  as  a  good  idea.  Rather  you  can  try  with  cardinals.  They  shouldn't  have  any  problems.

 I  had  tried  to  keep  neons  with  discus.  They  last  for  a  few  days  depending  on  the  water  temp  and  size  of  the  tank.  But  over  a  period  of  time  the  no.  will  definitely  reduce.  Many  a  times  I  had  seen  neons  being  ambushed  in  early  morning  hours  when  they  are  little  sluggish  and  the  Discus  are  hungry.

 In  general,  I  feel  that  Neon  Tetra  should  be  kept  only  with  other  fish  having  same  /  smaller  size  than  itself.  
 
 Otherwise,  there  is  every  chance  that  Neon  will  be  eaten.
 
 Recently  I  bought  2  pairs  of  Neon  and  within  2  days,  they  were  vanished  &  no  trace  could  be  found.
